ERMA Award winner - Best Actor - The Will Rogers Follies - West Valley Light Opera Musical Theatre Company - 2019
Michael Hirsch appearing in the role of Will Rogers.
The Will Rogers Follies is a musical with a book by Peter Stone, lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, and music by Cy Coleman.
The spirit of Florenz Ziegfeld lives again as this musical takes you on a bewitching tour of the life and times of the legendary Will Rogers with one dazzling number after another. Rogers’ rope-twirling, homespun humor is more widely appealing amidst sensational production numbers and panache of the original “Ziegfeld Follies” which dazzled audiences during the 1920s & 1930s. This musical opened on Broadway in 1991, starring Keith Carradine and won the Tony Award for Best Musical. Several national touring companies have since presented it in major cities across the country.
